Publisher's Summary

In this new, revised edition of Monkee Business: The Revolutionary Made-for-TV Band, author Eric Lefcowitz follows the fascinating story of Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork, and the late Davy Jones to the present day, with an insightful new foreword by magician Penn Jillette. 

If you don't believe the Monkees were one of the most influential forces in the history of entertainment, this new group's critically-hailed biography will make a believer out of you. Lefcowitz chronicles the kaleidoscopic journey of the four Monkees, together and apart, from 1965 to the present day, and their role in pioneering music video. With hits like I'm a Believer and Daydream Believer still winning loyal fans generations later, the Monkees have become an American entertainment institution. This is the definitive biography of a rock and roll legend.

The best part of the book is the last third.

This book goes from the beginning of the Monkees to the death of Davy Jones. If you know the story of the beginning of the Monkees. throughout the television series Car parts, okay, but the best part is the last third when it talks about their struggles. , the reunions and multiple other reunions to the death of Davy Jones. What's most interesting is the relationships between the four.
